It was the 13th of February. Oh, what a memorable date. I have already been travelled for more than 12 hours when I finally got on the bus from Berlin to Torun. The weather was cloudy and glumly. Back then I thought it is an exception and soon it would get better. Naïve me. Charged with positivism and great expectations, I was staring through the window, impatient to see my new home for the next several months.

Some people like sport, some – not. But when we speak about Olympic games everyone watch them holding their breath. So lets have a look on ESN Olympics from perspective of participants.

Having a vegetarian over and are clueless what to serve him/her? Wishing to help someone to like eating vegetables? Or maybe just having a desire to impress yourself with simple cooking... 5 stars restaurants serve this too, and you will know how to master it. I present you “Leek pearls on beetroot sauce bed” This is poetry in a plate.

“How to survive in Erasmus” starter pack – big Smile, big (or not so much) Camera and a Roommate with a big heart!

This is a recipe for homemade biscuits which can last without any problems for a mont, but probably won`t because they are quite tasty.

Lift up your sleeves, put on your “Kiss the cook”-apron and let’s get cookin’! I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for something Romanian tonight. How about some tocăniță and polenta? This is one of the easiest foods to make and it always gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling on the inside because it reminds me of childhood.

You think you are a terrible cook. You assume you will burn down the entire building just by approaching any stove. Sure, you can skip the hard work and go out to have dinner than to cook it; but why missing all the fun? Grab your best pals and start working that frying pan until you have an entire notebook full with recipes from all around the world! Here is your first: from the land of… Romania. *Special Erasmus edition*

Are you a linguist? Do you love languages? Well, try learning Polish then...

I worked in a hostel before coming to Torun, so I’m used to having travelers around and hearing a lot of amazing stories. A lot of them involving hitchhiking. So giving hitchhiking a try has been on my mind for a while now and I knew Poland was the perfect place to do it. And I did! :-)

Everybody has a reason to come to study in Torun. The question is for you to answer what is yours? This is may be very hard to explain or very easy to say in just one word. Let’s talk about what is my reason to be here...

If someone asks you to describe what you have experienced during the first month in Toruń as an Erasmus student, from where would you start?

For sure, you are asking „Is this a joke?“ but even though it's the first of April, it's not a joke.
